Bristol Photo Festival announces winners of Assembly Bristol photography competition

Axa IM Alts and their development partner, Bell Hammer, are currently building the final new office at Assembly Bristol. The development comprises three new office buildings – offering a variety of spaces and floor plate sizes. Its waterfront setting and landscaped areas provide a major new public space with access to Temple Way. Perfectly placed for transport, leisure and retail, the development is just a short walk from Temple Meads Station, Cabot Circus and the thriving Old City.

Designed by Stirling Prize-winning architects, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, Building B is due to complete shortly and will set a new standard in office innovation and design, combining contemporary architecture with a focus on post-Covid occupant wellbeing and sustainability. It aims to deliver a new office for Bristol – not just an office that is newly constructed but one which embodies a new way of thinking about workspaces and how they respond to the enormous shift in the way the world is now working.

In partnership with the Bristol Photo Festival, Axa IM Alts, Bell Hammer and AHMM sponsored a photography competition for all BA and MA students studying at UWE to shoot an image to be installed in their ground floor entrance lobby.

The jury was composed of Rob Samuel (Axa IM Alts), Maëva Bregere (Axa IM Alts), Patrick Davis (Bell Hammer), Alejandro Acín (Bristol Photo Festival Director), Adam Burgess (AHMM) and Alex Chinneck (artist). After receiving all the submissions, we are very happy to announce the winners and honourable mentions: Joseph Deveney (winner) and Lucy Bentley and An Nguyen (honourable mentions). The winning artwork will be ready for installation at Assembly Bristol in April 2024, and the students will be invited to unveil it on site in May 2024.
